New assessment panel for 2018

Applications within the annual annual open call for proposals are assessed by 10 different panels with different focus areas. For this year’s call for proposals, Forte has appointed a new assessment panel with the focus area “work and work-related health”. The new panel will replace one of the previously two panels within the area “work organisation”.

Some changes have also been made regarding the subareas of the remaining assessment panels. Information about each panel is available on the page “Scientific panels”.
